Revving up your romance

Printer-friendly versionPrinter-friendly version
As relationships continue, maintaining passion and intimacy requires bringing more of your true self into the relationship.

Evergreen psychologist and sex therapist David Schnarch, Ph.D., picks up where sexual behavior researchers Masters and Johnson left off. For a decade, his book "Passionate Couples: Love, Sex and Intimacy in Emotionally Committed Relationships" has served as a guide to building and improving the bonds of love. He and his wife, Ruth Morehouse, Ph.D., also conduct weekend couples workshops designed to put a little spark back into LTRs. Though their seminars can be R-rated because of their frankness, they have a few G-rated tips for people wondering about the natural progression of intimate relationships and how to stop the slide into boredom.
